“Don’t bend; don’t water it down; don’t try to make it logical; don’t edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly.”
– Franz Kafka
I love Roxane Mesquida, and soon, so will you. While everyone is in a tizzy over Elizabeth Hurley being added to the cast of “Gossip Girl“, Mesquida is the addition worth your stylish attention.
The French actress and model is set to play Prince Louis’ sister; she is coming to New York unhappy with her brother’s decision to marry Blair Waldorf (aka style obsession Leighton Meester). Roxane was recently spotted on set with Leighton in nude platform heels by Fendi, a grey embellished bag by Valentino and a gorgeous, v-neck Missoni dress.
While I am hoping they take more risks with Roxane’s wardrobe, I also hope they take some inspiration from her personal style. The laissez-faire sartorial flair of Mesquida is enviably nonchalant, and would translate to screen beautifully.
The fifth season of “Gossip Girl” will be premiering Monday, September 27 at 8pm.
If you didn’t already know, Dolce & Gabbana have a webzine called Swide. Tomorrow, fashion editor Yuri Ahn (and Co.) are e-sharing a print story titled “The Story of Leopard” which will trace Dolce & Gabbana’s affinity for the print since 1991. A special preview is below, lucky you.
The truth about leopard: we all wonder what the obsession is all about. Leopard is a fashion icon of its own. Therefore the mystery needs unveiling. The seductive yet dangerous appeal of the print has been a keepsake for Dolce&Gabbana since its debut with the FW91-92 collection. Who better than the designers themselves could give an insight? A family inspiration, a fashion tribute, or pure love. It might not need an explanation. Does love?

Returning to his early days of chiffon in various types of animal print, Roberto Cavalli introduced a leopard-printed, tiger-spotted, zebra-striped war woman for Fall/Winter 2011. Since my everyday dress is a constant ode to heroine-wear (aka Wonderwoman obsession), I worship that Cavalli has created a neoteric, wearable armour and then draped it in metal necklaces. So much stood out to me from this man conquering collection – see the top five looks below. View Post
